Cotton Tail composed by Duke Ellington (1899-1974). Arranged by Mark Taylor. For Jazz Ensemble. Young Jazz Classics. Grade 3. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.7010802).
Here is the classic Ellington swinger in a fabulous version for younger players. The drive and excitement of the original is still there as Mark starts out with a small combo of 2 tenors and 2 trombones, then gets the full band involved. Includes solos for alto and/or trombone and also for trumpet and/or piano. This chart will sound great with any band!
